13 Cheeky Chocolate Recipes and November’s We Should Cocoa

13 Cheeky Chocolate Recipes

The first of the month just keeps coming and We Should Cocoa turns forever faster! October has been a busy month what with National Chocolate Week, Halloween and the last few episodes of The Great British Bake Off – oh no! There are a lot of us bakers who are very sad to see it go. But read on to see what these 13 cheeky chocolate recipes have been inspired by.

13 Cheeky Chocolate Recipes

Chocolate Pistachio Slice

Decadent fudgy chocolate and pistachio slice from Suelle at Mainly Baking made with condensed milk and a biscuit base.


Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough Traybake

Chocolate chunk cookie dough traybake from Caroline Makes – now those are what I call chocolate chunks.


Lime Syrup Cake

After such sweet treats, this white chocolate & lime cake from Jo at Seven Green Apples makes a welcome appearance. I was particularly excited to see that kefir had been used in the mix – I’m not the only one then!


Toffee Apple Tiffin

Tiffin is one of my favourite things and I’d love a piece of this toffee apple candy chocolate tiffin from Beth at Jam & Clotted Cream as my Bonfire Night treat.


Dark Chocolate Ginger Tiffin

Another tiffin, my day has got even better. Dark chocolate, stem ginger and peanut butter tiffin from De Tout Coeur Limousin


Simple Family Chocolate Cake

Everyone has a favourite chocolate cake and here’s Helen’s simple family chocolate cake from Roast Chicken and a Country Walk


Halloween Cake

Halloween had to make an appearance and I’m so glad it did. This chocolate peanut butter swirl cake from Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary is the best Halloween Cake I’ve ever seen.


Crème au Chocolat

If you fancy viewing some stunning French sunsets and finding out what this Crème au Chocolat has to do with Proust, then head over to Phil’s blog As Strong As Soup.


 Fruit & Nut Chocolate Shards

These sumptuous fruit and nut chocolate shards with popping candy from Galina at Chez Maximka were a fitting tribute to National Chocolate Week.


Chocolate Birthday Bundt

One of two chocolate birthday bundts for Miss GF by Kate at Gluten Free Alchemist.


Black Forest Roulade

And yes we have a #GBBO inspired bake – Snowy Black Forest Roulade from Sammie at Feasting is Fun.


Triple Chocolate Buns

My nod to National Chocolate Week were these triple chocolate buns and very nice they were too.


Maca Bliss Balls

We are assured by Johanna that her post is not a Halloween one, but these balls look like mighty fine one eyed monsters to me. However, unlike most Halloween treats, the chocolate tahini maca bliss balls from Green Gourmet Giraffe are healthy ones.

    Oh there are so many yummy things here. We don’t have tiffin here in NZ that I’m aware of, or maybe we call it by a different name but whatever it’s called, I’ll be trying both these.

      Tiffin is also called fridge cake and biscuit cake. You can tell I like it as I have about 10 different recipes on my blog.

    Tiffin, kefir and Proust! Oh my! A great fun round up and too much temptation. I have a few chocolate posts this month and am just not sure which one to send in! After your comment on the tahini and chocolate combination I am tempted by my chocolate and tahini recipe but might go for the fun cake!

      I have to say Elizabeth, I think you’ll have a very hard time surpassing your spider cake – it’s a masterpiece. Now there’s a challenge 😉

      It’s a good one isn’t it? For me, I’m just unable to resist tiffin if it’s on offer.

      Oh lovely Riz, please do, I’ll look forward to seeing it. I find Elisabeth’s spider really quite scary and I’m not scared of spiders 😉
